At about ten minutes and eighteen seconds into the film, The Narrator is awoken by a car horn outside the "warehouse". He gets up, on his knees, using the cane for support. Then the camera switches to a shot of Walter laying on the ground, his cane visible and also lying on the ground. In the next shot, Walter's cane is in The Narrator's hand again. See more »
And there he is, the Rajah's prize possession, Captain Keller. He's killed more people than you've met. A good man to avoid.

The Perfect Title? If it Refers to the Response it Elicits From Viewers, YES!

One must apply powers of divination as to director Jeremy Alter's intentions. Location Manager on high-profile films, long before and since, SLEEP seems to be an obviously ill-fated foray into film direction. ("Location Managers Gone Wild"?) In its conceptualization, SLEEP was projected to become a larger-than-life, neoclassic, film noir, somnambulist visionary dreamlike masterpiece....Sorry, Jeremy, only in your "Perfect Sleep" dreams! From beginning to end, the central character delivers an incessantly droning voice-over monotone narration. Was this intended to lull the viewer to sleep? Desired or not, that's the effect it had on me.
Looking at the finished product, the execution didn't achieve 10% of what was envisioned. There were a few moments when it seemed SLEEP was, at last, awakening! (Fleeting moments, indeed!) Movie locations were ONE 10* element. Mr. Alter certainly does have a good eye...All other visual aspects 7 or 8*. Just about every other aspect rates 2 or 3*! Overall:
4*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA! (If You Can Manage)
Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
